Android 4.1's easter egg inevitably features jelly beans

New, 3 comments

The grand tradition of hiding easter eggs in mobile OSes continues with Android 4.1. As with previous versions, you trigger it by rapidly tapping on the version number within settings. Doing so reveals the happy jelly bean you see above. A further long-press on its rosy face brings up a floating sea of jelly beans, each of which can be flicked away with what seems like some finely tuned inertia. It's no Taxi, but it'll do.

The grand tradition of hiding easter eggs in mobile OSes continues with Android 4.1. As with previous versions, you trigger it by rapidly tapping on the version number within settings. Doing so reveals the happy jelly bean you see above. A further long-press on its rosy face brings up a floating sea of jelly beans, each of which can be flicked away with what seems like some finely tuned inertia. Essentially, it's exactly what you expect an easter egg to be: cute, light, and probably not worth visiting multiple times. It's no Taxi, but it'll do.
